Gay & lesbian Stockholm

Gay and lesbian life in Stockholm is like the city itself: easily accessible, hugely fun, highly varied and warm and welcoming. Below you will find a selection of popular restaurants, bars and clubs within the LGBT community. But for all the latest news, events, tips and guides, visit our blog Gay & Lesbian Stockholm and become a fan on Facebook.

Over the last few years, Stockholm has emerged as one of the world's favourite gay and lesbian destinations, winning awards and topping "Where to go" lists across the planet. Stockholm Pride in July-August is the highlight of the year. It has grown to become one of Stockholm’s largest annual festivals, as well as the largest Pride celebration in Scandinavia.

In a city as open as Stockholm, there has never been a need for a special "gayborhood". Lesbian, gay, and gay-friendly establishments are scattered throughout the city and rainbow flags fly high in many of Stockholm’s central districts.
